REPORT: Toulouse end Rovers’ run

By Michael Hale 

Toulouse Olympique 14-6 Hull KR

TOULOUSE OLYMPIQUE ended table-toppers Hull Kingstone Rovers’ unbeaten start to the Championship.

Kuni Minga went over for the opening try after just four minutes before Mark Kheirallah’s conversion and a penalty goal gave the hosts an 8-0 half time lead.

Andrew Heffernan cut the deficit after the break with Zach Cockar-Clay’s conversion making it a two-point game.

But Toulouse held out and even finished with a flurry as Rhys Curran went over for the contest-ending score four minutes from time before Kheirallah made it three kicks from three with the conversion.

The French side are now four points adrift of today’s visitors.
